Temptation. The very word sounds like something dirty. It’s known to play havoc in our life. We are all tempted by one thing or another. However, with everything we’re giving whether it be temptation, limitations, health issues or disabilities. We have a choice how we let it affect our everyday life. Temptation can be as much a bad thing as a good thing. It can make us or break us. If we fall into its prey we can become all consumed by it. Even a prisoner of its allure. On the other hand, if we are conscious enough to look at it straight on, then we can see what it has to show us about ourselves.If I want to accomplish something better for myself, but my temptations keep showing up sabotaging all my efforts. Then the temptations are there to show me what I have to stop doing. It becomes a tool for some of the most difficult lessons in our life.
So next time your tempted to eat, drink, smoke or sabotage your best efforts remember the choice is always yours. As they use to say in the 80’s, “Just say no!”
